Welcome to Walker Community!

Located in the Bradshaw Mountains, south of Prescott, AZ, Walker Community is an old mining district, filled with history. It’s named after Joseph Walker, mountain man, explorer, and guide. He led a party to this valley to discover gold in the summer of 1863.

Today, the valley is filled with rustic cabins and elegant homes. There’s a vibrant community of people here, with an active social calendar. Some live here full-time, while others have second homes here.

Everyone loves it here.

Cellar Fire Update – Walker Fire – July 20 pm

We provided some detail on the map of the fire. The head of the fire is 3.5-4 miles from Palace Station. Work at the top of the fire is just about complete and they are just about done prepping Palace Station(hopefully that turns out to be unnecessary). If you look at the map, they are finishing up line fortification between H8 and H10 (these are on the NW flank). The “trouble spot” pointed out on the map has moderate heat but very little in front of it that can burn, it bumps up against previously burned areas and they have […]

Cellar Fire Update – Walker Fire – 1:00pm

Today’s cooperators meeting didn’t yield a lot of satisfying (as indefinitive answers) information. Despite what some of the clouds look like, no rain is expected down at the fire. The cloud cover today is a positive but today and tomorrow are expected to be dry. Moisture is expected to build up on Sunday (not necessarily rain, but higher humidity).

We tried to provide some context on the map as to what is going on, please note the map is best efforts and may not be precise. The head of the fire is one of two top priorities on the fire […]
